Two excellent dudes rocket through time while a bicyclist glides towards modernity. An Appalachian mountain dancer busts a move as Fred and Ginger twirl through the night. Sexy vampires seek a third for nocturnal fun and games and a human chameleon pops up in all the right (and wrong) places. It’s the return of Top Down: Rooftop Cinema, your ticket to summer, music, and cinema under the stars.
Join the Northwest Film Center atop Hotel deLuxe’s parking structure at SW 15th and Yamhill for our ninth annual program of Top Down: Rooftop Cinema.

DANCING OUTLAW I & II: JESCO GOES TO HOLLYWOOD
Band: Barry Brusseau
Meet Jesco White, a hard-living tap dancer in Boone County, West Virginia, whose repeated run-ins with the law have interfered with his dream of becoming as renowned a “mountain dancer” as his late father, D. Ray White. Jesco has three distinct personalities: a sort of skinny version of the fat Elvis, the gentle and loving Jesse, and the violent and dangerous Jesco, who his wife Norma Jean warns is “the devil hisself.” This hilarious and slightly exploitative peek into 20th century Appalachian life demonstrates that real life provides far more eccentric characters than the fanciest of fictions.
